Abstract

The inhibitory activity of (9R, 10S, 12Z)-9, 10-dihydroxy-8-oxo-octadecenoic acid and its diacetate, acetonide and methyl ester toward tea pollen tube growth were different, the inhibition by the diacetate being the strongest. Each compound of the fatty acid and its derivatives exhibited more inhibition than its C-9 epimer. The fatty acid and its C-9 epimer showed the same toxicity against HeLa cells.
